Not really a recipe, but for me these drinks are sometimes lifesavers. Generally I love water and enjoy drinking it, but sometimes I feel so bored or have a huge craving for something fizzy or tasty. And I have to say these waters are tastier than any stupid cola or sprite, and surely healthier too. Plus don’t forget how amazing they look like, so they are also perfect on the table when you have guests.
You can use sparkling or still water, but the drinks taste also amazing with some tea, especially with green or herbal tea. You can make a small glass for you, or a huge carafe and put it in the fridge. Use normal or crushed ice, or just some frozen fruits to cool your drinks down.
I love the good old Mojito with or without alcohol, doesn’t matter. But the virgin version is amazing, you can enjoy it anytime of the day. I just used a lime, a few mint leaves, crushed ice and water, that’s it. If you want it to more like the original, add a little spoon sugar to it too.
Grape and Rosemary water
Grapes and rosemary are such a classic combo, they work wonderfully together in this water too. I always keep some grapes in my freezer, they are great as ice cubes for any drinks (I use them in my white wine too) and they are the very best snacks for summer time. So freeze some grapes, you will love them frozen!
Cucumber and Basil Water
A few years back I was truly confused when a friend of mine put some water with cucumber on the table. Like whaaaat? Vegetable in a water? Then after the first sip I asked how could I live without this. So amazingly refreshing and tasty.
I had now one drink with basil, cucumber and lime, but I highly recommend you to try it with mint or lemon or (frozen) berries too.
Don’t forget to stay hydrated and enjoy your vitamin waters!
